Dear Giuseppe,

Me! In spite of the beauty, in spite of the hospitality of the lovely people, I would hate, hate, hate to go to Vietnam for one reason — I am awful in humidity! I wilt, I faint (it has happened before), I run out of air & energy. I am that 2% of people who have the opposite of SADD (called TSADD), trust me, it’s a thing. I would stay in one tiny part of the country — well, that’s no fun! I do my think I could hack it in India!

Thank the gods for tremendous travel articles like yours! I find myself transported to the lush places with wonderful photographs & great descriptions, while still sitting in the cafe in Denver, Colorado, as it snows, in near freezing temperatures. Thank you!
